• Community Partners

    Community partners are agencies that have no district contract, but have work agreements with individual campuses. Services are funded by the agency—Phoenix Union does not pay for community partner services.

    Becoming a Community Partner

    Complete the following steps to become a community partner:

    1. Meet with a campus community liaison to complete the volunteer packet. The packet includes a Request for Clearance Approval for Campus Service Providers (with administrator approval), a Campus Work Agreement, a Background Information Form, and an Insurance Disclaimer for Non-Employee.

    2. Proceed to the district office with completed volunteer packet for fingerprinting and processing at no cost. 

    3. Receive a processing receipt and return it to the campus community liaison. The receipt does not authorize a community partner to begin having student contact—the community liaison will contact the partner upon receiving notification of initial clearance.

    4. Sign in and out when entering or leaving the campus.

    A copy of the volunteer packet will be kept on file at the site with the community liaison, and a copy of all clearance paperwork must be forwarded to the dropout programs developer.
